Kanye West & Kim Kardashian were snapped strolling through NYC this past weekend as the ‘new happy couple’. A successful man like Kanye probably wants a Beyonce to his Jay, a Victoria to his Dave or a Jada to his Will but could Kim really be it?
I’m definitely not buying this fauxmance but get your money Kim!
If you are wondering why an A-list rapper like Kanye and a reality-tv star who’s been in and out of at least 4 public relationships over the past 5-6 years and is fresh off of a 72 day marriage-gone-wrong would even hook up, Elizabeth Currid-Halkett, author of Starstruck: The Business of Celebrity, broke it down for the Washington Post:
For a star with no obvious talent, Currid-Halkett said, “it becomes increasingly important to create the narrative arc around romance.” Stars such as Angelina Jolie at or Michelle Williams at least have movies to sell — “we don’t need to care about them as people because we care about their talent” — but Kardashian’s “entire business relies on the public being interested in her.”
But — what about West? He’s got talent; he sells music. Yes, Currid-Halkett said, but his persona is “all about antics. His music is always tongue-in-cheek.”
She mulled it a bit more. “He may be someone who needs attention,” she theorized. “You know, I’m not in his head.”
Aside from the obvious, at least they do have a lot in common. USA Today notes that they are both Fashion Fanatics, Limelight lovers and they both have bad luck in love. Looks like a match made in media heaven.
Kris is somewhere smiling and planning another wedding special..

What do you think? Do you believe that they have been secretly hooking up for years or that they are together??? I'm not sure I'm buying this but I will admit I do think they belong together. I actually thought that to myself when Ye came on the show when she opened the Dash Store NYC. It was very obvious that they have a lot of chemistry. It's a great match I think, they both love the "lime light" and they both can bounce back and forth from LA and NYC. What's to loose Kim???
